On Saturday, Jacquie hosted a virtual Alberta Party leader's breakfast. We had an amazing turnout of over 100 members!

Attendees heard about the best places to visit, great Alberta art and artists, and the Alberta entrepreneurial spirit. We're looking forward to the next breakfast!

Board Bio — Sid Kobewka

Sid is a newly elected Provincial Board member with a lot of real world experience in listening to find solutions to problems.

With a background in law he can see problems from many sides. He has decided to jump on board with the Alberta Party board to really make a difference.

This Week in Alberta

Ok, we can’t avoid it. This week, the U.S. Presidential cycle was all consuming. While the outcome in several states was closer than expected by the polls, former Vice President Joe Biden has won.

Here are three stories about what this might mean for Alberta and our energy sector:

Consultation makes good policy—it’s a core value of the Alberta Party. That’s why government legislation that will allow a toll bridge to be set up in northern Alberta is something to be applauded.

Locals, especially farmers hauling grain, have been asking for a bridge over the Peace River near La Crete for years and have developed a plan that includes tolls to help build it. The new legislation allows the plan to be enacted.

We will cheer good legislation, but oppose the bad. This week, the government furthered its intrusion into municipal politics by tabling legislation that will allow for referenda to take place during municipal elections.

Municipal elections should be about municipal issues, and not twisted by province-wide campaigns and PACs.

Interesting Read

Last week, there was a major shakeup in the energy industry, when Cenovus purchased Husky energy. This article from BOE Report is a great primer on what it means for the industry moving forward.
